As part of Glasgow’s Green Year 2015 the official ‘re-opening’ of the recently upgraded section of the National Cycle Network route 7 that runs from Whiteinch to Yoker in west Glasgow and the official launch of the Simple Pleasures Easily Found map for west Glasgow will take place at 1.30pm on Friday 27 March 2015 at Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre, G14 0BL.
The re-opening and Simple Pleasures map launch event is being hosted by Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) as part of a week long series of events and activities that are taking place to celebrate the completion of the £250,000 project to upgrade the section of the cycle path. The project has been funded by Glasgow City Council and Sustrans Scotland and is part of a wider investment programme in improving cycling infrastructure across the City.
The Simple Pleasures map has been produced by Scottish Natural Heritage in partnership with DRCET to celebrates Glasgow’s natural assets and aims to help connect people with where they live and to where they want to go – local parks, the canal and places of interest. The map is based on a 10 mile circuit linking the cycle path to the Forth & Clyde canal tow path and back to the cycle path via Whitecrook, Knightswood and Victoria Parks and other local green spaces.
